Not sure when or if your Honda Insight’s steering and suspension systems need service?

Is It Time For 2005 Honda Insight Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 2005 Honda Insight, you and your passengers probably enjoyed a ride that was smooth and balanced. But these days, things are starting to feel a bit rough. Perhaps your Insight feels bouncy, drifts to one side, or makes noise whenever you turn or drive over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 2005 Honda Insight in for steering and suspension services. We can pinpoint the source of the trouble.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We will examine the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, springs, CV joints and axles, struts, bushings, chassis components, wheel bearings, and the power steering system. We’ll get to the root of the issue and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we’ll explain what your car needs and how much it’ll cost to get it done. We won't begin any work without your permission. If parts of your Honda Insight suspension or steering system need to be replaced because they're worn or damaged, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Honda Insight Shock & Strut Replacement Services

Struts and shocks are a vital part of your 2005 Honda Insight’s suspension. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. Struts support the structure of the suspension and shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to limit vibration and keep your Honda up off the ground. However, there’s no set schedule for when you should replace your Insight’s shocks and struts since many factors affect how fast and severely they wear. A bouncy ride, swaying, or an unusual rocking sensation could all be signs of worn Honda Insight shocks and struts. It’s a good idea to have your 2005 Honda Insight’s shocks and struts regularly checked out by a certified auto technician.

Questions About 2005 Honda Insight Steering & Suspension

  • What role do tire pressure and tread depth play in my Honda's suspension? Proper tire care can reduce strain on the suspension system, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Honda Insight get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Rotations and alignments involve minor tweaks that have a major impact. Both services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to all tires and that the tires come into contact with the road in the way Honda intended.
  • When should I have my Honda Insight power steering fluid checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your Insight is low on power steering fluid, we’ll follow Honda service specifications when topping it off to help your suspension perform optimally.
